New Delhi, Mar 16: India today strongly rejected the comments on Jammu and Kashmir contained in the final document of the Organisation of Islamic Countries' (OIC) Summit held at Dakar in Senegal, saying the OIC has no locus standi in matters concerning India's internal affairs.

Expressing regret that the OIC in the documents issued following the OIC Summit held in Dakar on March 13-14, a spokesman for the External Affairs Ministry said the OIC had once again chosen to comment upon Jammu and Kashmir and issues internal to India. ''The OIC has no locus standi in matters concerning India's internal affairs, including Jammu and Kashmir which is an integral part of India. We strongly reject all such comments,'' the spokesman added.

The OIC final communique, issued after the conclusion of the 11th Summit, reaffirmed solidarity of the Islamic world with the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

It called for the solution of the Jammu and Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people.

The Summit also adopted a resolution tabled by Pakistan on Jammu and Kashmir.
